Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias: One Show Fits All, Jan. 29 on Netflix

Stand-up comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias is back with One Show Fits All, his latest comedy special to drop on Netflix. Filmed in front of a sold-out crowd at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, where the city’s NBA team plays, the new hour sees the comic doing what he does best.

Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television, Jan. 30 on YouTube Premium

Will & Grace, Jan. 31 at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC

After a nearly two-month-long hiatus, the second season of NBC’s Will & Grace revival returns with a new episode. Titled “Family, Trip,” the episodes sees Will (Eric McCormack), Karen (Megan Mullally) and Jack (Sean Hayes) unknowingly take a hallucinogenic drug. This causes Will and Jack to wonder if they’re each other’s soul mate and inspires Karen to give her last “performance” as Mrs. Stanley Walker. Grace (Debra Messing) does not imbibe in the accidental trip, however.

Into the Dark: Down, Feb. 1 on Hulu

The latest episode of Hulu and Blumhouse’s horror anthology series Into the Dark, Down, follows a pair of office workers, Guy (Matt Lauria) and Jennifer (Natalie Martinez), who get trapped in an elevator over a long Valentine’s Day weekend. What at first promises to be a romantic connection ultimately turns dangerous and horrifying when the two turn on each other.

Russian Doll, Feb. 1 on Netflix

Co-created by Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland, Russian Doll stars the former as a young woman named Nadia who’s having difficulty coming to terms with her life. A party meant to celebrate it, however, quickly becomes as surreal as it is comedically dangerous when she begins to experience it over and over again. Russian Doll adeptly mixes the comedy and drama genres, so audiences won’t want to miss it.
